|A summer shoe much more suitable for church than the dreaded flip-flop|
I loathe flip-flops. My preferred summer footwear is the time-honored classic espadrille. Aside from the fact that you can't wear them in the rain (remind me to tell you about the time I did) they're summery, comfortable and so far as I'm concerned, always in style. Espadrilles are not so economical as flip-flops in terms of cost ( the pair pictured above sells for about $30) but I make mine last 2 or 3 summers instead of the intended 1. And I can wear them to church with a nice dress or skirt and not look like a slob sloshing down the aisle for Holy Communion in those dreaded rubber things. I can't even stand the sound of flip flops. I really can't. And the fact that my autistic son shares my low opinion of them is not lost on me.
